Style + Life + Fashion had the opportunity to interview Georgette Pierre. Learn more about her platform here!
- What was the inspiration behind creating Georgette After Dark?
The curiosity and interest really started after Chelsea Handler left her late night show, Chelsea Lately, on E! Entertainment. Before other women popped on the scene, I wanted to break through the late night space. Since I wasn’t anywhere near the brand notoriety, I decided the next progression after #DearGeorgette was Georgette After Dark so I went shot three pilot episodes when I was working a lot in LA.
- What can audiences anticipate from the new interview series?
A good vibe from some amazing guests. I didn’t mince words and I loved the fact that my guests were open to the concept. I walked away learning something new from people I already knew. I think the audience will walk away with that too or at least laugh at the varying levels of candidness during the after dark segment
- What professional achievements are you most proud of?
Good question. Each point in my life, I asked for the things you would consider a professional achievement. I moved to New York and survived and thrived in my 7.5 years living there. I wanted to work at Viacom/in TV production and I did that for six years on and off in the middle of Times Square, tourist mecca of the world man (aka pedestrian city). I wanted to be bicoastal and I partially achieved that with my job in TV production requiring so much travel to THE LA as I call it. I got tapped to write about my favorite show, Power, for Entertainment Weekly. There’s not one or a few professional achievements I’m most proud of. I’m just grateful that I had access to navigate the spaces I was in to even scratch the surface of the things I accomplished/achieved. That’s what I’m most proud of, to be honest.
- Provide one piece of advice to someone that’s interested in becoming a producer or host?
Start creating. Don’t wait for the opportunity to come your way. Find others who want to do things in or around the world you’re creating. My colleague wanted to direct so I made him the director of my first web series #DearGeorgette. My mentee wanted to learn more about the production so she was a PA on my first scripted web series that’s not out yet.
